With local community leaders and WellSpan officials by her side, Karen Jones, M.D., senior vice president, WellSpan Health, and president, WellSpan Medical Group, cuts the ribbon on the new WellSpan Urgent Care in Hanover.
Pre-Opening Celebration will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 8
WellSpan Health leaders and staff joined with local community leaders Thursday to cut the ribbon on the newest WellSpan Urgent Care in Hanover.
The urgent care center is part of a new shopping complex under development at 100 Eisenhower Drive in Hanover along the community's “Golden Mile.” Like all WellSpan Urgent Care centers, the Hanover location will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. It officially opens to patients on Monday, Dec. 10.
“When you need a doctor, sometimes it comes down to what is easiest,” said Creston Tate, D.O., WellSpan medical director of urgent care. “With WellSpan Urgent Care, Hanover area residents will now have convenient, walk-in access to health care every day of the week. Health care should fit into your schedule, not the other way around.”
The purpose is to provide walk-in care for patients age 3 months and older, who have non-emergency needs, such as minor illnesses and injuries – from sore throats and coughs to back pain, rashes and burns. The new Hanover center will also offer X-ray services.
In addition, all WellSpan Urgent Care locations offer school, camp, college and sports physicals, as well as some routine immunizations, and patients can take advantage of an online service called “Reserve My Spot,” which allows them to choose a time slot that suits their schedule. This can be done via smartphones, computer, tablets or at an in-person check-in kiosk at the office.
Additional information on all WellSpan Urgent Care locations is available at WellSpan.org/Urgent.
Convenient care, close to home
The opening of the Hanover center brings the total number of WellSpan Urgent Care locations to six across York, Adams and Lancaster counties.
It also marks just the latest investment in health care resources for the greater Hanover community. WellSpan now has 13 care locations across the greater Hanover area, including primary care, specialty care, lab and imaging services.
On March 4, 2019, WellSpan Health and Surgery Center – an 80,000-square-foot facility – is expected to open on Baltimore Street, providing outpatient surgery, lab, imagining and other expanded services. For more information on the WellSpan Health and Surgery Center, visit WellSpan.org/WHSCHanover.
